Discernment and Social Media

*** NEWS FLASH ***

This post is specifically for believers - those who claim not to know about, but to truly KNOW Jesus Christ.

The Holy Ghost gives us wisdom and discernment.  It is through the Holy Spirit that God gives us divine knowledge and understanding (1 John 2:20).

With that, we cannot blame those who have no trust or confidence in the God we claim to hear from when the "saints" continuously post lies, gossip and false news all over Facebook and other social media.

Real talk... PLEASE check the source before you share news stories and preach to others about praying, fasting, etc.  Use discernment.  Don't believe and share everything you see.  Use wisdom.  Don't entertain gossip by spreading lies, even on line.  CHECK THE SOURCE. is not a valid news site.  What does CNN say?  Fox news?  Something...

If we cannot, with all our Holy Ghost and divine wisdom, decipher truth from a lie when it comes to the simple things, how in the world can we claim to hear God in the major matters of life?  It's no wonder people are losing confidence in the church and Christian leaders.

Certainly, we all make mistakes.  However, being ignorant and foolish is not acceptable.  We must walk in godly wisdom and maturity.  If we are not mature or sensible enough for Facebook, Twitter and the like, it's better to stay away thank to risk your integrity with the Gospel.  Selah.
